Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 5-8 - These accessible guides are nearly identical in the treatment of several subjects, such as healthy eating, exercise, and skin care, and the chapters on feelings, relationships, and sex. The information is presented in a straightforward manner without judgment, which may be comforting to preteens who are finding the road to adulthood a somewhat frightening path. The focus is on physical changes and some of the accompanying feelings. Sexual activity is mentioned, but readers are encouraged to wait until they are older, and contraception is not discussed in detail. Good, sound primers.-Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA

    Reference 4 all Girls

    I think it would help a lot of girls who don't know what to do to becoming a teen. I used it and thought it was pretty good. So, whenever all you girls get this book, read it. It is a great reference.

    This book is not a book for preteens

    I am 11 years old and this is my review. I am kind of skeptical about this book. It says in the editorial review that it talks about sexual content. If this is a book for preteens, it should not talk about sex. What if the sample is just a mild version of the real book. That is really scary. What if it has pictures, racy pictures because it is a book about that sort of. I do not think that people or children for that matter should read this book. I give it five stars. This is a professional review.

I you are wondering weather to buy it or not it is worth the money if you want to know about growing up into a young lady. Trust me i am two months away from being eleven and i love the book! Great book but readers descresion is advised (you take it as your own risk to read it...)
